The Sidelaunchers are the CDBCC's dragon boat team. We are made up of men and women of all ages and abilities, who practice together, on water, for one hour on Mondays and Wednesdays, 6-7pm, starting May 17 through the second last week of August! The cost for the program is $100 plus the $35.00 membership fee. New members are always welcome, and no experience is needed. We will even provide the life jackets and the paddles!
You may be surprised how your current fitness activities complement your paddling, and vice versa. Our practices will include a dynamic warm-up, technical focus, some cardio and interval work. This develops our skills as a group, and prepares those who wish to race for the two-to-three regattas we do each season.
The club emphasizes good sportsmanship and participation; the regattas are an exciting and engaging way to put skills and sportsmanship together as a team. Regardless of whether you paddle for fun and fitness, or whether you like to race, paddling dragon boat is an excellent way to be healthy, outdoors and enjoying the company of like minded-people on Collingwood's historic waterfront.
We hope you join our paddle community.
